Acer Extensa 4620-6194 Laptop

 

The Acer Extensa 4260-6194 provides adequate performance for a budget-priced, business-minded machine, but don't expect to get more than what you pay for.

Affordable price tag; nice-looking display; plentiful connectivity options

Lackluster performance; bland design; cramped touch pad; no ExpressCard slot

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

OK, so far!!

 

This one is a T2330 processor, but otherwise the same specs - says "4620-4431" on the label. Traded a new Sony Vaio Vista laptop for this XP machine. Sony will NOT let you use XP (AHCI cannot be avoided, and XP can't see it). I'm happy. Had a ......

WIN XP, very versatile, many options, generic components, WIN XP, wifi antenna booster, solid feel, WIN XP, very nice touches everywhere, well designed and thought out, and it has WIN XP

Little heavy, lots of Acer software to get thru/around, says "ACER" all over

Acer Extensa EX4620-6194 NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo T5450(1.66GHz) 14.1" Wide XGA 1GB Memory DDR2 667 120GB HDD DVD Super Multi Intel GMA X3100

 

Newegg shipping still good although the outer shipping container was not securely taped, 3/4 of the top flap was loose - no visible damage to the contents, though.

Price, size/weight, speed, low operating temp. My last notebook, an HP, Celeron ran so hot it was uncomfortable on the lap. Core 2 Duo rocks. Well worth the extra

Very disappointed that Acer does NOT include a Recovery CD/DVD, not eve a means to burn your own. Instead one must spend and additional $30.00(US) to order these. For $700.00 Acer should have included them. In my opinion, Acer really dropped the ball...

wow... just... wow

 

This thing is great... runs great with only 1GB of ram in it. Acer Did a fine job. There is one funny note though... It had the Intel Celeron sticker on it. The processor is in fact a Dual Core. I'm Very satisfied and looking into getting more in

Wow... this thing runs great. no problems what so ever. Its fast, and does the job right. very good buy. My client was very satisfied

Well Norton was preloaded... i could have lived without it. Other then that.. none
